FocusIn on window destruction

I've come to the point where I don't want to bang my head trying to  
untangle spaghetti that someone else probably understands much better  
and can just point me to the proper function call...  When I close a  
window, the WM is receiving a FocusIn event for the next window that  
should gain focus.  Unfortunately for us on OSX, this sometimes causes  
us to swap Spaces... so I need to add in some logic to handle that  
case (set focus on the root win if there are no windows in the current  

I can't seem to figure out where this FocusIn event is being generated  
from (or more specifically where the logic is that chooses the "next"  
window).  Could someone possibly clue me in and help untangle this  
mess in my head.
